Katagiri Roshi

‘This life is not a matter for discussion from your own viewpoint. You live in the midst of life and death and suffering because they exist, really. That’s why Buddhism says accept your life and understand how the world is with imperturbable composure. To be imperturbable is to walk step by step by step. This is a hard thing, but you can accept it. Even though you suffer from your daily life so much, just accept it, just listen to the silence, the voice of your steps, with imperturbable composure. This is Buddhism.’ (from Wind Bell)
